Vibrant, pure and focused, with confectionary aromas of lemon drop
candy, toasted hazelnuts, peach blossoms, and rolling country hills brimming with
springtime’s verdant glory.
The sumptuous palate opens with a juicy mix of fresh
apricots, sweet citrus, Meyer lemon zest, and a persistent quenching lusciousness that
teases a subtle obsession. Drink now through 2025.
